"Rarely do I take a chance on a movie that I have never heard of before, but the guy at Blockbuster said that if I liked Indiana Jones and Day After Tomorrow, I would love this movie. It was not so.
It is the year 2048 and global warming has melted the ice caps, flooding the earth and making only 10% of the world habitable. Jack (Ian Somerhalder of "Vampire Diaries") and Thomas (Jamie Thomas King The Tudors - The Complete First Season) follow their father (James Brolin Last Chance Harvey) as he attempts to find an artifact that will restore the Earth to the way it was before global warming took over.
The story line had lots of potential to be a really excellent movie. But, they really needed to find people who could act better. It was just painful to watch an actor as experienced as James Brolin struggle through his part. I was constantly finding myself correcting the way that the actors were saying the lines. Emotions were so forced that it was nowhere near believable.
All in all, I wouldn't even recommend renting this movie (which is rare, since I believe in giving most movies a chance) because then you'll just be going through exactly what I did."
Please let us have the HD Widescreen version

"I bought this from Germany, Region 2 in order to get an English version that was HD and Widescreen.
The description on this one says narrow screen and standard definition.
A huge shame since it was originally filmed in HD and was a very attractive movie to watch... saw it on the SciFi channel (oops I mean the ScyFy channel).
Good picture, but standard / narrow would pretty much ruin it."
